Our Lady of Lourdes & Prayer for Australia

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church

Good evening dear friends in Christ,
This Wednesday, February 11th, we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. The beautiful church in the photo above is my parish blessed to be named Our Lady of Lourdes. Our parish will celebrate our new parish fellowship hall with a potluck dinner for parishioners that evening in conjunction with the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, but SADLY I cannot attend because I will be teaching my night class during which I will be giving my first exam of the semester.
So I'm posting the photo above because I won't be able to blog on Wednesday. I'd blog a bit more, but I have to work on the exam for Wednesday's class.
I wish you all a blessed and peaceful evening.
Please join fellow Catholic blogger-friend, Margaret in prayer for Australia and her citizens, for the fires to end and for the safety of the Australian people in danger of these fires. Let's pray also for the souls that have already perished in this disaster.

Dear Bella,
So lovely of you to remember us all here in Australia with your prayer support.It has been a terrible time for all those who have been closely caught up in the fires. So much distruction - so many lives lost - such a sad time for the beautiful land and animals that have also been traped by the fires. I am sure that your prayers and the prayers of your friends will be greatly appreciated here in Australia.
Margaret from Australia
